Anheuser-Busch Recognizes Florida East Coast Railway as Intermodal Carrier of the YearMonday, June 18, 2012
Florida East Coast Railway (“FEC”) is pleased to announce that it has been named Anheuser Busch’s 2011 intermodal carrier of the year. This award is based on the cumulative ranking of key transportation and operational metrics as measured by Anheuser Busch that includes on-time pickup percentage, average payload per shipment, trailer pool compliance, loaded trailer aging, and award compliance. FEC was ranked number one across all award metrics.
FEC provides door-to-door intermodal service from Anheuser Busch’s Jacksonville brewery to multiple south Florida wholesaler locations. FEC is Anheuser Busch’s largest intermodal carrier and performed nearly 8,000 beer and trade return loads in 2011. FEC President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Hertwig commented, “We are very pleased to receive this prestigious award from one of our largest customers. This recognition from one of North America’s largest shippers aligns with our core values of providing customers safe, reliable, and best-in-class service. Our success with Anheuser Busch proves there is value in short-haul intermodal moves and challenges the belief that intermodal moves can only be successful on long-haul routes.”
